Students interested in the Farm Medicine program will typically work with a mentor in the National Farm Medicine Center (NFMC) on a project that focuses on outreach and rural or occupational health problems within the farm communities. This includes preventing youth injuries and fatalities, injury surveillance, community outreach and education, farm microbiome and human immunology, and evaluation research. In addition to the independent research project, students may have the opportunity to be involved with projects related to the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety, which is one of 11 agricultural centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the editorial offices of the Journal of Agromedicine, which is the world’s number one source of peer-reviewed agricultural safety and health information.
